Study on polyphenol Ribetril A
A polyphenol found in selected varieties of red and black currants (Ribes rubrum, Ribes nigrum) offers significant benefits for younger looking skin based on a large human clinical trial from France. In this trial 50 subjects (age 40-65) consumed orally 30ml nutritional beverage with Ribetril A daily. Objective measurement methods proved a significant anti-wrinkle and smoothing effect already after 6 weeks.
Method of action
Emerging scientific documentation indicates that Ribetril A, a highly bioactive polyphenol-alkaloid, acts on key enzymes and has various physiological targets including the mitochondria. More specifically, Ribetril A has been documented to stimulate both the mitochondrial number and function in muscle cells. Mitochondria are the small energy factories inside all cells providing energy on demand. These small energy factories are most abundant in brain and muscles and are crucial in athletic performance, mental ability and healthy aging.
In a clinical study performed in France with 50 healthy women and men with the age span of 40-65 years consumed orally 30ml nutritional beverage with Ribetril A. Objective measurement methods proved a significant anti-wrinkle and smoothing effect already after 6 weeks with a sustained effect after 12 weeks. This is a uniquely fast acting effect for an oral product.
Additionally, significantly increased microcirculation in the skin and a significant moisturizing effect was measured. The increased microcirculation may add more life and glow to the skin and strongly supports the finding of an anti-wrinkle effect since regeneration of the skin is dependent on a good blood circulation. Furthermore, already after 6 weeks, 66% found an improvement of hair and 60% of nails and more than 85% were convinced about the anti-aging effect of the product.
Healthy skin from Inside and Outside
Ribetril A can only be found in selected red and black currants (Ribes rubrum, Ribes nigrum). The berries are screened, sources and produced into a liquid by the Danish company Asiros that also holds the patent on the compound and products with increased levels of Ribetril A. The patented liquid is standardized regarding the high level of total polyphenols including the Ribetril A.
